I like:

“The efforts which we make to escape from our destiny only serve to lead us into it.” -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

It reminds me of something a co-worker said yesterday when we were discussing the concept of fate. I'm not sure who originally said it, but she quoted it:

"A man's fate is his character"

~ keith

This sounds like a great book - I may have to pick up a copy.

Emerson on having all his good stuff stolen by the ancients made me laugh out loud!

May I add one of my own?

"Church work would be great if it weren't for all the people..."

(Please don't tell my congregation I said that!)

“It is not at all simple to understand the simple.” – Eric Hoffer

This is how I feel about Christianity. Reading that we are to be imitators of Christ is pretty simple. But actually being like Christ is not simple at all.

“When people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other.” – Eric Hoffer

I think this is one of the most under-acknowledged truisms I've ever heard.

Awesome! This Englism major is intrigued andmust go find the book now :-)
